Please help us for July 06/30/2017This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

By Swamper77American Fire Department Units
Detailed Models created by Ripptide
Automata Models created by Swamper77
This download contains a collection of American Fire Department Units. Most of the units are additionals, which means they will appear in addition to the
default fire truck. There is also a folder of replacement
units that will replace the default fire truck. The available choices are:
- Rural Fire Truck
- Pumper Unit 1
- Ladder Unit
The additionals will appear at random when you plop a fire station, dispatch a fire truck, or do UDI with the fire truck. The Fire Chief's car is an additional car that is available once a fire station exists. There isn't a mission script for it at this time and it cannot be dispatched. It has its own icon in the Land Vehicle UDI Catalog. All previous fire stations will need to be replopped for the fire chief's car to appear near them.
By goldivaTo fellow BATters: have fun playing with these new NightWindows colors! The pack includes both window standards and intense funky shades ideal for neon effects. This is a special thanks to those who share their nightlight knowhows in the BAT forum!
Note: I toned down the zoom 4,3,2,1 brightness so you won't get the "annoying perfect brightness level for zoom 5 but too bright for small zooms" problem.
Installation: Just unzip all 15 colors to gmax/gamepack/BAT/Map/Nightwondows/.

By Swamper77EMT EMS Ambulances
Automata models created by Swamper77
Original models made by Ripptide
This download contains a pair of EMT EMS Ambulances that I have created from Ripptide's emergency vehicle models that he sent me. There are 2 versions, one with blue lights and one without blue lights. The ambulances have a custom headlight model for nighttime driving. They also have custom models for the flashing lights.
There are two sets of vehicles, one set that replaces the default ambulance and one set of 2 additionals. The additionals are accessed through the default ambulance icon in the UDI Menu.
The game will randomly choose between the default and the additionals when you choose to do UDI with the ambulance or when it spawns them near hospitals.
There is a readme in the zip file. I suggest you read it before installing the files. The file that is in the "Global" folder must be installed or you will have multi-color patches on the sides of the ambulance(s).
I will be getting a tutorial together on how to customize the EMT EMS Ambulances to your liking soon. To see my other works in progress, click here.
By fukudaA container carrier that won't replace the other cargo boats in your harbors.
well, is a huge boat, so I advice you to put some space in your harbors, ;-P
This boat was also a request from yoman3
By RickkI have decided to skip finishing this project for now so that I can concentrate on finishing college and getting a real job. But since I didn't want to see the project abandoned, I've decided to go ahead and upload it to the STEX so that anyone can give it a shot at completion.
As of now, it's about 40% completed, and just needs to have the roof worked on and the base. This would be a great download for any new BATers looking to get a start on something that already has some momentum. Please note that you'll have to stretch the model 3,000% for it to fit in the game, as I like to work with smaller numbers until I'm ready to export.
Big thanks to everyone at SimTrop, especially HONG KONG who managed to get a lot of amazing shots of this tower and its complex, which is located in Hong Kong, China.
Also included in the ZIP file is the beginning for a new version of the Plymouth Arcology, a massive structure that could house 25,000 sims (was originally from SimCity 2000). I hope someone creative can do something with it!
By fukudaHi! A few days ago, I saw on the modding topic that some of simtropolis community members were interested in having new planes, so I decided to return to my dear automata activity.
Instead they are replacements of the original maxis 767 plane, they have new things, like a new alpha channel wich helps to show up more details in the wings and replaces the ugly black bug.
A new mod allowing to use more planes at the same time will be uploaded soon...

By kd5raxThis is the set of unrendered files and dependencies for the latest revision of the Petronas Project. What is needed at this point is a BATter who would be kind enough to merge as many of the props as is realistically possible into three (I'm guessing, one for the base and surrounding props, one for each tower - and skybridge) pieces so rendering and getting everything to show up is easier. If you would be interested in helping, add me to your MSN Messenger list : SPARTAN117NLS@hotmail.com. Also ... I am giving strong thought to a version with a more "normal" base due to its abnormality. If you would be interested in helping with this as well, drop Equinox a PM.

By buildermanWARNING: DOWNLOAD IS ONLY FOR LOT MAKERS. END USERS DO NOT DOWNLOAD
The BDS Stupid Texture is designed for one use, to not show up. When you don't want a base texture on your lot for whatever reason, use the BDS Stupid Texture. If your end users are smart enough to read the warning above, they won't have the BDS Stupid Texture on their computer, and nothing will show. As a bonus, if you do play the game with the BDS Stupid Texture installed, you'll notice, because the texture is so dumb.
The product of 10 minutes of boredom. Hopefully this will be of use to someone.
There are no dependencies for this plugin.
There is no tech support for this plugin. It is provided to Lot Makers with no support. If it doesn't work, don't use it.
By EquinoxThis is a set of 18 new nightmaps for use on your BAT models. These maps have been used on various NDEX projects in the past (and on things that have not yet been released). They add a significant amount of class - and variety - to your nighttime skyline. Once installed, they can be selected from the Parameters area of the BAT rollout (in the gmax Utilities panel).
As always, there is a readme file included, detailing how to install these maps.
In short, put the folders in the following directory (presuming default installation):
These maps were created by DuskTrooper, Equinox, and N74704.
By r3b00tOn request, on request my vending machines have been giving textures of real brands. I'm going to release other looking vending machines too but for now your sims can enjoy these ones.
14 of these brand new machines @ your service!
Every machine comes into two versions.
Machines included for:
- Coca Cola
- Mountain Dew
Feel free to use, change and distribute this file but please give credit to me. I hope I'm going to see this in some lots.
By fukudaTired of your old boieng 707 or the 767?
This is the first completely custom passenger jet of the STEX and you can choose what plane will replace in your game, just choose one of the 2 different DATs in the ZIP.
This boeing is specially dedied to Glenni (that's why it's a SAS plane ;-) ) for his help in difficult batting moments.
